Last fall, Westonka Public Schools opened its newest gem: the Westonka Performing Arts Center, which will provide a home for arts performances of all kinds.

When Alexandra Riffle and Courtney Simonson launched the @MWHSPride Twitter handle and blog “170 Days of #MWHSPride,” the Mound Westonka High School seniors weren’t trying to make a statement. It started with a goal to increase school pride. “We felt our school was lacking in pride and school spirit,” says Riffle. “We do have an amazing school, and we have a lot of people who are really amazing going to it.”
Mound Westonka High School senior Alex Robbins was recently named a National Merit semifinalist, putting him in an elite national group in the running for scholarship funds.
“Alex is a unique individual—he’s very bright,” says math teacher Lisa Paul. “He’s always looking to further his thinking. When I give notes in class, he’s already five steps ahead, asking questions.”
